Moleskine Diaries: Woven
March 3, 2014 § Leave a comment
I was inspired to draw this piece when I desperately wanted to put something on paper with pencils. I love the smoothness and show of light that pencils can give to an object and I really wanted to us my Derwent set that was sitting unused for a while. I was staring at a woven reed storage basket when I decided I would draw something similar.
The ink blue to fill in the background was a random choice.
A tree on the opposite page. Not a very good sketch since I got bored.
Surprisingly I used green and a reddish brown in the woven strands, you can’t see much of the colours I used in the photograph unfortunately.
